    Dolomites, Italy: A golden eagle. For golden eagles in the higher latitudes of the planet, winter is often the hardest time of year. For some scavenging from carcasses is the only way to survive the harsh conditions. In some populations less than 50% of golden eagles will make it through their first winter. Golden eagles are one of the fastest animals on the planet and a supreme mountain hunter. There are populations across all Northern Hemisphere mountains ranges. They are well-adapted to hunting in such terrain; telescopic eyesight means they can spot prey from two miles away and a seven-foot wingspan allows them to soar up to 100 miles in a day in the hunt for food.
